It seems that spring is finally here and, with the sun out and shining, it’s the perfect time to get your DIY on. Here are some tips to get your outdoor space ready for enjoying the brighter days or for an Easter egg hunt with the family!

1. Do the basics

Mow the grass, cut back any overgrowing trees and plants, pull any weeds and sweep up the rogue dirt.

If you’re looking for something that will really last, laying artificial grass could be a great alternative. It looks like the real deal but is much more manageable to maintain – all year round!

2. Wash the patio

A quick sweep and jet wash of the patio will make a huge difference. Once it’s sparkling clean, it’ll make the garden feel brighter.

3. Touch up any paintwork

It might be a bit of a bore and take longer than the other jobs, but it’ll make a world of difference! Paint any brickwork or fences that might’ve suffered over the winter.
